Big And Bigger

Well I don't have good news to report from my visit with the RE.  I am definitely not pregnant.  I am not in a new cycle either.  Actually Dr. C. has no real clue where I am in my cycle.  He said, "you are recruiting follicles and your E2 count was 145 Monday.  You have break through bleeding and your uterine lining is now only 7.1 when it was 9.1 just a few weeks ago."

The blood clot in my right ovary has grown.

The two follicles on my left ovary are now cysts.

I have corpus luteum cysts going on but he didn't state which side.  He did state that this is indicative that I ovulated and might have caught the egg. But it doesn't really mean squat to me at this point since he wants me off the endometrin as of now.  He says that the progesterone might be adding to the messed up cycle.

Dr. C. didn't tell me how many follicles I am recruiting nor the size of the follicles I have now or the size of the blood clot.  Maybe it just doesn't matter at this point?

He wants me off of the clomid for a cycle.  I should go on birth control but he said with the migraine headaches I get while on it that it wouldn't be worth the side effects.  So in two bleeds I'm to call the clinic and schedule blood work and a scan.  So about the end of May he figures.

This isn't the first time my cycles have gone haywire while on Clomid.  I was amazed that Dr. C. would even hint at menopause without digging through my chart.  Seriously I'm quite regular with 24-27 day cycles without the clomid.  The clomid is what messes up my cycles.

He said that I should try on my own, a full natural cycle this time, but only if the pain isn't too bad.  Good thing I have plenty of OPK's.  I have two hpt's on hand and that should be enough since its really the opks that will be needed most.

So within two weeks of going off of progesterone I've been known to have a bleed.  Back in the days of my really messed up cycles from the PCOS I used to use Provera to get my cycles to start after the negative Betas.

In two weeks if I don't start you know I'll be calling my clinic to find out what is up and try to get AF on board with our next trial run at pregnancy.

Oh and still no news from the gastroenterologist.

  7. GAH it sounds like your body really isn't cooperating. What, if anything, is your RE going to do about the blood clot? Or is it supposed to go away on its own?

    Best of luck moving forward.

    1. He is going to absolutely nothing about it. I'm guessing he figures like magic it will go away. I'm remembering last year the ER visit I had when the 9cm one burst releasing all that blood back into my body. Fun times, NOT!
